My Brand New Leg is an excellent way of introducing children 9-12 to differently enabled individuals. Wonderfully illustrated, the characters are introduced to a girl who has a prosthetic leg and can do everything her newfound friends can do. While nameless and colorless, the main character gracefully shares her abilities with others and never once expresses a difference. As she encounters new activities, her friends see that she is no different. The moral of the story is aptly suited to readers of all ages.
Audience: Children, Parent, Professional
